Weekly Update: WCIA interview, Kids bike giveaway

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on December 14, 2020

All, Last Monday WCIA came by the Bike Center and interviewed me for our Kids Bike Giveaway event. Made the evening news! We got one call from a woman in Tuscola, a man from Danville, and a woman emailed from Springfield, all referenced the news story.
Accordingly, we’re in full-on kids bike mode: student staff are fixing them, I’m fielding phone calls and emails, people are dropping them off nearly every day we’re open and sometimes even when we’re not.
I think we’re at around 20 bikes and we should probably get to 30 by week’s end between both shops.
This week we’ll continue prepping for the Bike Giveaway event, mostly logistical items like signage, set up, and keep fixing them.

The numbers:

Visitors: 11

Sales: $215
Bike (refurb): 1 for $160
Tires/tubes: 4 for $39
